Cubic Tech’s new recreational, clothing and outdoor materials line, designated CTF³ encompasses a full range of materials designed to meet today’s demand for extremely light weight and strong alternatives to woven fabrics. Cubic Tech develops specialized ultra-light materials for the outdoor industry that have high strength, tear resistance, waterproof, breathable and flame retardant.
The CTF³ product line are flexible non-woven laminates that utilize DSM Dyneema® fibers. These materials are offered in non-bias (0°/90°) and bias (0°/90°/+45°/−45°) configurations in a variety of weights. Surface coating options include waterproof/gas-tight films, waterproof/breathable membranes, or woven fabrics.
“Dyneema® is a highly advanced range of products based on an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). It is incredibly strong—15 times stronger than steel. Yet it’s extremely lightweight—up to 40% lighter than materials like aramids. Patented technologies give Dyneema® its unique, highly-directional attributes that allow for its unmatched strength-to-weight ratio." Source: DSM Dyneema® Home Page
